Courtney was an ASE Master Technician who built the largest automotive repair facility in Albuquerque. He put his all into everything he did, from turning his ’70 Cadillac Coupe deVille into a 9 second dragster, to building a land speed record breaking engine. His time away from work was spent on his farm in Peralta or hunting with his friends and his hunting dogs. His grandchildren were the light of his life and brought him much joy.
